Forum: GratefulDead Subject: dead songs played with no lyrics

Yesterday I randomly picked a show and discovered an instrumental version od Help/slip with vocals on Franklins only. It was excellent! The vocals were not missed as Jerry's lead filled the space and I was almost disappointed when he started singing Franklin's .............so here is the question............are there any other examples of the Dead doing this. Playing songs usually sung as instrrumentals? If so i would love to find some.

09/04/1980 in Providence RI - included in Download series Vol. 7 09/03/1980 - somebody's stuff wasn't working and Bobby started playing "supplication" ... eventually the whole band joins in on a tight little supplication jam leading straight into Estimated Prophet. Good stuff.

There is a new source up here that sounds a little better at least from the start.

Several of the studio outtakes have songs played through with no lyrics, I cant think of the spots to find them right off hand, I know I have ran across several in the archive.

I don't think the Dark Star on 6/23/74 has lyrics, and it didn't need them either!! Also in 73 and 74 they played a Nobody's Fault But Mine Jam at the end of Truckin' or Dark Star.

Some songs were played as instrumenals before the words were developed like the one you mentioned, Help On The Way. Other examples are "The Main Ten" an early version of Playing In The Band before the words were written. Here is a great version of The Main Ten that comes out of Dark Star:

and "Uncle Johns Jam",which as the name suggests was the wordless Uncle John's Band. Dick's Picks of the 11/8/69 Fillmore show is the perfect example of that.

And for an almost entirely instrumental show which includes a wordless Blues For Allah check out this great but bizarre show.
